My System Specs


Isn't the classified supposed to be EVGA's top board.... Only 4 dimms and only 6 Sata ports... embarrassing...

I never really had an issues with my Rampage 3E, but I was going to go EVGA this time around.. I can't go MSI cuz my fans are red. ASUS it is.
MSI GT72 6QE-033US - 6700HQ, GTX980M, 1080p G-Sync IPS, 16GB DDR4, 1TB Evo 850 SSD, 256GB Toshiba SSD, 2TB Barracuda, BD-Rom/DVD-RW

My System Specs


^^^ On a side note the Classified Board hasnt been released yet, there may be changes yet!!

Only 4 dimms and only 6 Sata ports.
I could care less about the 4 DIMM's...populate them with 4 x 4GB RAM...16GB is oodles..I have 12GB and never come close to using it.
As for the 6 SATA's...thats exactly how many I'm presently using...
1. 120GB SSD (Boot n Apps)
2. 240GB SSD (Games)
3. 640 GB Black (Data)
4. 640 GB Black (Movies / Music)
5. DVD
6. Blueray Writer
Really for me its plenty.
My beef is cheesy passive cooler, no "flashiness" and no Lifetime Warranty (the biggie)
Would like to know how many fan headers and just how good the passive coolers are.
Does support PCIE 3.0, look for this with Kepler.

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530

Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico
